    What I’m trying to do is have all my FDS games run via nestopia core. Rather than change each game to use it, is there a way to specify a core to use in the run command for a given file extension?

    <system>
    <name>fds</name>
    <fullname>Famicom Disk System</fullname>
    <path>~/RetroPie/roms/fds</path>
    <extension>.FDS .zip .ZIP .fds</extension>
    <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ nes %ROM%</command>
    <platform>fds</platform>
    <theme>fds</theme>
    </system>

    where ‘nes’ would be something like fds or something.

    duplicate /opt/retropie/configs/all/nes to another folder /opt/retropie/configs/all/fds – and edit the emulators.cfg to include just that one emulator. then in the runcommand line in es_sytems.cfg, use “/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ fds %ROM%”
